ESU 10 is pleased to offer the Academic Literacy Project, a professional development series that focuses on helping teachers become familiar with and implement research-based literacy strategies that will increase student achievement for adolescent learners.The project focuses on four research-based recommendations for improving adolescent literacy. The recommendations are to:
1. Provide explicit vocabulary instruction
2. Provide direct and explicit comprehension strategy instruction
3. Provide opportunities for extended discussion of text meaning and interpretation
4. Increase student motivation and engagement in literacy learning
The goals of this project are to become familiar with and implement research-based literacy strategies that will increase student achievement. The project trainings are facilitated by ESU 10 Staff. In addition, Dr. Anita Archer, independent educational consultant who works with districts across the country, we lead the Year 2 trainings on writing and text dependent analysis.
